Here is the second completed Chicago commission. The theme of this painting was Learning. The first thing that came to mind as I mulled over this subject was wooden blocks. I spent a considerable amount of time on ebay searching for vintage wooden blocks, and discovered quite a few listings. Most of them were suitable, and reminiscent of the blocks from my childhood, but when I came across these I knew I had found exactly what I was looking for. They're hand crafted by a woman named Brenda, and sold under the banner My Fathers House 4. You can find these blocks, and other items she creates with that "vintage" look on her blog. Now it's on to number three. The subject of that will be Family.
